The Canon EOS Rebel T7, 1500D, 2000D (same exact model with different country names) camera profiles render properly using the camera's 'As Shot' white balance settings, but display a very high and incorrect Tint value in the LR 8.2.1 Basic panel. In addition when using any of the Basic panel WB presets (Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Shade, Tungsten, etc.) set for the actual shooting lighting condition the image takes on a strong yellow-green tint shift.

More details at the below Lightroom forum post:

I posted a similar weird problem 3 months ago, but no one seems to have noticed it.

This is a different camera and using a proprietary function probably not supported in LR/ACR. Adobe Engineering will see your post link here so if related perhaps can address it as well.

Yes Todd, it is a different camera, but the symptoms are so very, very similar. I have also found that no matter what WB setting I use on the camera, a new NEF created using the camera's Overlay feature always has a Colour Temp 2800 and Tint -119 when imported into Lr, yet it looks exactly the same as the original image until the WB setting is changed in Lr.

Agreed. The below video on YouTube of a Nikon D750 image overlay NEF file appears to be supported in LR Classic, but with incorrect WB values same as yours (2800 and -119).

Should be fixed in the next version of Camera Raw/Lightroom.

Will both the Canon EOS Rebel T7, 1500D, 2000D and Nikon 'image overlay' NEF file WB issues be fixed. Just clarifying for expectations. Thanks Rikk!

That is my understanding - but I've been wrong before!

We are now up to Lr Classic 8.4 and the white balance issue I reported for a Nikon NEF file produced by combining two NEF files using the in-camera overlay feature still hasn't been fixed.

I can confirm the Canon camera WB issue posted here is still present in LR 8.4.
The Nikon image overlay issue you posted at the other link is a separate issue still marked as 'In Progress.' At that link I suggest posting a share link to an overlay NEF file that exhibits the issue for escalation. Thank you.
